        Rooms were not up to par. Many repairs were needed and not made. Bad showerhead, sliding doors needed repair. .............

        Location was great! The staff was friendly!

        The room looked like it was falling apart, cabinet doors did not close properly due to loose hinges, part of a base board kept falling off, soap/shampoo was not replaced the second night, no microwave, and the magnetic keys worked on over all we were happy with the location and service but didn't feel that we got our money's worth in the quality and attention to detail.

        Being on the dunes and right next to a beautiful beach was lovely. The room and bed were very comfortable.

        Coffee wasn't hot

        A very comfortable & attractive room, the half bottle of excellent red wine was a very enjoyable welcme gift.

        The lack of a restaurant that matches the quality of the accommodation is a distinct disqapointment. Room service food was indifferent and expensive.

        The view of the ocean, the fireplace, balcony and bed.

        The two chairs are very uncomfortable. Needs club chairs that are more comfortable.

        Our room was attractive and the staff was friendly. .

        The coffee was not very good. We stayed in an "ocean view deluxe room" that we were told could comfortably accommodate four people, and it was surprisingly small. Also, we were told that the room would be directly on the beach, and our view consisted of the parking lot and the houses surrounding us -- the beach was disappointingly far away. The towels and blankets were not of the standard one would expect from a hotel for which we had paid so much money. There was no ocean, there was no view, and it was not deluxe!

        I was very pleased with the resort. We had a great view of the ocean and a spectacular sunset. The room was luxurious and very clean. I had a lot of fun driving the golf cart.

        No complaints. To answer the the question about reviews on the website -- a previous guest made a comment on your website that the carpets were dirty - our carpets were very clean. I walked around the room in white socks and and did not pick up any dirt.

        Rooms are real comfortable beach houses, some of them with a great view on the ocean.

        The staff was outstanding from checking in, getting to the room and housekeeping.

        You cannot drive to your room but are issued a golf cart to take back and forth to your car in order to save on emissions. This is sometimes a little inconvenient.
